Cara Clarkson thought, almost not his own eyes, when she and the family drove to a secluded road in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Close by the road stood namely a kridhvid grizzly bear, which, together with a dark grizzly bear was looking for food.
'Holy smokes," exclaimed we. We knew that we were lucky, for we never hear about white grizzly bears, she explains, according to The Guardian the meeting with what at first glance might look like a polar bear.
And real enough are white grizzly bears unimaginably rare.
- It is certainly a unique animal. Personally, I have never even seen a white bear, says Seth Cherry, an expert in game wildlife, according to The Guardian.
Since 2017 has been known to the white grizzly bear in the national park, but with the photo, as Cara Clarkson has taken, this is the first time the public sees the white bear.
the President of the Grizzly Bear-Foundation in Vancouver, Nicholas Scapillatti, is not surprisingly delighted with the new images.
- When you have iconic species which grizzlybjørnen, and you get the here genetic variations, captures the really our imagination.
But according to konserveringsbiolog Mike Gibeau is everything, however, not the joy and gammen for the bear.
The unusual appearance of the animals are being hunted ruthlessly by photographers, so the less we talk about the animals, the better.
